    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    I'm going to leave this thread alone and Agree to Disagree with you, on this topic.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    You, like it or not, are one of many public faces of Ultimaker and whether you consider yourself Customer Support or not, you represent the company. Thus, when you make "snarky" responses, it reflects on your team and company. When you ask the community for feedback on beta versions and respond in this way, then defend it...it's disappointing.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    Well I don't think the average end user needs to know all about the intern stuff or what's involved in fixing it. I was just pointing out that it's not working and would prefer you treat a customer as one. I bought a printer and countless filaments, upgrade components and so on. Your response, intentional or not, comes off as rude. (I think you guys are really loosing touch with your customers. There used to be some respect and simple acknowledgement of an issue. Now you offer a bunch of internal excuses why something won't be resolved.) I guess I'd prefer you just acknowledge the issue and tell us a fix is coming in a future release.

    So we're awaiting an intern to fix this rather obvious issue? Gotcha.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    Correct. I moved them manually and they successfully printed overnight
  6. I went into "Open File", selected two small STLs (bottom and top of a Raspberry Pi case) expecting both to appear on the buildplate One was not on the build plate Right click and Arrange All Models and it still won't place them on the bed I tried again, making sure (Ctrl A) all models selected and "Arrange All Models" Same problem and error I wound up manually placing them on the bed, but wanted you to be aware of the behavior.

    I'll share what they reply with. I worry about layer adhesion printing too cool...but maybe it should go lower, below their suggested printing range.

    Ha ha.... no problem. I've become a convert to the PVA Aqua-Net Extra Hold hair spray method. Every few weeks I take the glass out, treat it to a very soapy hot water bath and scrubbing...then back. I also enjoy the purchasing of the hairspray...as I am bald, the cashier's facial expression at my purchase is always enjoyable. I inquired with Matterhackers for some tips...

    Thanks for this....I am taking a look at it in Cura and see you are doing your initial layer at 240, then 235. I also noticed your bed temp is a lot cooler, at 60C, than what I use (80C) 8 mm retraction with the default 25 mm speed. Given you are using a UM3, I wonder if those values mesh with the UM2+ ? This is fun to view, since I loose all the temperature values when I use the CPE Profile with the gcode set to Ultimaker 2. That's all handled via the Materials.txt / LCD Menu - profile setting on the machine.

    Ultimaker S5 | impressions & opinions

    I've seen reviews for Stratasys and other high end printers ?

    Thank you...and if you could, post some of the essentials (temps, retraction, etc) in here...so if anyone searches for solutions in the future, the search engine will lead them here ?

    Cura 3.5.1 Causining Stringing?

    Your PETG certainly prints a lot cooler than mine. What retraction distance and speed did you say gave good results?

    I'm printing on the glass heat bed with a coating of extra hold hairspray. Prints come off easily once cooled

    Cura 3.5.1 Causining Stringing?

    I'm a newcomer to PETG as well. I've used ColorFabb nGen and ColorFabb HT. The suggested settings do not work well and overall, I've found ColorFabb to cost twice as much as anything else...and twice the frustration. Back to PETG,, I've been doing some prints with it on my CR-10S (Zyltech brand) and getting some mixed results. Some good, some .... need tweaking. I am not confident the stock hot end is the greatest (China!)...I'd like to replace it with a Swiss Micro all metal hot end and know that I'm not having issues there. On the Ultimaker 2+, I've just tried a few test prints. They came out really good....but really hairy/stringy. PLA prints like a champ on my UM2+. The Cura default profile is usually quite good, unless you need supports...then that's where Cura is usually a disappointment. My S3D profile for the UM2+ works much better for those needs. I just haven't got the profile refined enough to give me the almost-no-z-seam Cura does.
